FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
IS MY BRAND ELIGIBLE?
The Dirty Thinkers’ Choice Awards will only highlight products that are clean by Think Dirty standards. Please review our methodology page and current verified brands to get an idea of the type of products that are likely to be eligible.
CAN I SUBMIT PRODUCTS FOR MULTIPLE CATEGORIES?
You may only submit one product per specific product category, however, there is no limit on how many products you would like to submit per overall category. For example, under the skincare category, you may enter products in the toner, serum, eye cream and face mask product category but only one product per category will be allowed.
WHAT ARE THE CATEGORIES?
Categories include skincare, makeup, hair, body, men, baby/kids, household, nail care, and beauty enhancers. Under each category, you may submit your products for individual product categories (for example: under ‘makeup’, you can submit your products for eyeliner, lipstick, etc.).
IF YOU WANT TO ENTER THE SAME PRODUCT TO MULTIPLE CATEGORIES, HOW WILL THE FEES BE CALCULATED?
Each product entered is $USD 395 per subcategory. For example, if you would like to submit a 2-in-1 shampoo and condition for both the shampoo and conditioner subcategory, the total cost will be $USD 395 x2. Fees are calculated per subcategory entered, not by product.
WILL THE ENTRY FEE BE REFUNDED IF I DON’T WIN?
No, entry fees are non-refundable. Finalists will be vetted / pre-screened based on Think Dirty Methodology prior to presenting to our users. We encourage you to review our methodology page and our current verified brands to get an idea the type of products will likely be qualified.
HOW MANY WINNERS WILL THERE BE PER CATEGORY?
There will be one winner per subcategory. For example, there will be one winner for toner of the year, eyeliner of the year, shampoo of the year, etc.
WHEN WILL VOTING BEGIN? AND WHO WILL VOTE FOR THE WINNERS?
